Open Innovation Technology Portal

Your Personalized Open Innovation Technology Portal

To successfully compete, companies need to expand their ability to identify new products, new technologies and new opportunities.

What can a Portal Do for You?

An open innovation portal can help your company solicit and find new and emerging technology opportunities and solutions to problems by providing a secure place for inventors, scientists and technology owners to submit their technologies to you.

The problem is that running a successful Open Innovation portal can be challenging, and expensive.
